FIRE RETARDANT COATING FOR WOOD
UGAMCOAT 06022007 System is tested and certified for 2 hour rating by Government of India's National Test House Mumbai.
HSN CODE 32099020
It is specially prepared for getting fire retardant properties in wood. Wood is flammable itself by nature. When there is fire in the vicinity and the temperature reaches 400 degrees C, wood gets self ignited. And the reaction of fire starts spreading. To prevent such heat transfer and to block the oxygen from reaching to the surface these type of intumescent coatings are used. These are useful on all types of wood but since these are opaque, the wood grains are not visible after coating these coatings on wood.
HOW IT WORKS:
It forms foam when temperature reaches 250 degrees Celsius. This foam is heat and fire resistant and almost non conductive. During the foam forming reaction, some inert gasses are released. These gasses keeps Oxygen away from wood. The foam thus formed keeps the surface away from heat and hence does not allow the surface to receive or conduct the heat in other areas. Also since this forms foam and a charred layer, it does not allow oxygen to reach to the surface over which it is applied. Hence it protects the surface from catching fire. UGAMCOAT06022007 requires its UGAM FIRE RETARDANT PRIMER to be applied first, followed by application of UGAMCOAT06022007 to the specified thickness with respect to rating required and then finally two coats of UGAM F R TOPCOAT WOOD.
First clean the surface with emery papers. In case old paint or primer which is not fire rated is applied to the wood, remove it with paint remover or mechanically. Then apply single coat of UGAM F R PRIMER for wood. The primer can be thinned down with pure clean soft water. Primer can be applied with brush or spray. Then after minimum four hours interval apply first coat of UGAMCOAT06022007 with brush, roller or airless spray to the surface. Allow four hours for drying. Then apply second coat of UGAMCOAT06022007 to the surface and again allow four hours for drying. Likewise go on applying the coats of UGAMCOAT06022007 to the surface till you achieve dry film thickness of 700 microns for one hour rating OR 1500 microns for two hours rating. After application of final coat of UGAMCOAT06022007 to the surface allow 24 hours curing. Then apply first coat of UGAM F R TOPCOAT WOOD in desired color shade over UGAMCOAT06022007 for protecting fire retardant coating from weather. Allow it to cure for six hours and apply second coat of UGAM F R TOPCOAT WOOD. This can be applied with roller, brush or spray. The surface will now be ready after 12 hours for regular use. This coating is warranted for five years or first incidence of fire from the date of application. In case surface is exposed to fire, the coating should be re-applied to the surface.
COVERING OF PRIMER AND TOPCOAT:
UGAM F R PRIMER WOOD will cover 80 square feet per liter. It is to be applied single coat only. UGAM F R TOPCOAT WOOD will cover 45 square feet in two coats. It is to be applied in two coats.
